The City School provides an exceptional education to a diverse student body. Through individual attention in a supportive and dynamic environment, students become creative and critical thinkers who ask questions, debate and express ideas fearlessly and respectfully. With a focus on civic responsibility, communication, and problem-solving, our students are prepared for a lifetime of critical thinking, meaningful work, and ongoing service to causes greater than themselves.
Our core values are Educational Excellence, Diversity, and Community. By educational excellence we mean that we engage every student socially, emotionally, and academically in a project-based rigorous education that challenges them to think critically, collaborate, create, and problem-solve. By diversity we mean that we proactively build a caring and inclusive community of diverse families that celebrate differences and learn from each other. By community we mean that we harness the energy and voice of all of our partners and stakeholders through collective input, shared responsibility, and active engagement to better serve our students.
The City School’s vision is to prove the power and impact of a truly collaborative public school organization. This means that we create schools in which diverse stakeholders exercise self-determination, autonomy, and collective and personal responsibility to pursue the collective goal of a world-class education for all of our students:
The result is a family of schools in which diverse stakeholders feel ownership and connection to student outcomes, and remain actively engaged during and beyond their time with the community.
